Here's a short summary of how the battle played out:

Deborah, the leader of the Israelites, urged ten thousand Israelites under the command of Barak to take advantage of their elevated position on Mount Tabor to defeat the forces of the Canaanite King Jabin of Hazor on the plain below. When the Canaanite chariots were bogged down due to heavy rainfall, they became sitting targets for the hordes of Israelites charging down the mountainside...
 Quoting: b4its2l8

The end of Sisera:

From Biblestudy tools:

Looking for a safe haven, Sisera comes to the tent of Jael, the wife of Heber the Kenite. She invites him to come in and find safety. To enable him to rest, Jael covers him with a quilt or rug and gives Sisera milk when he requests a drink of water. Assuming his hostess will redirect anyone looking for him, Sisera goes to sleep. He never wakes again due to Jael's brutally killing him.

Jael's actions are debatable. On the one hand, Sisera knows the custom of never going into a woman's tent without her husband being there. Anyone who does can be killed. On the other hand, Jael's action of inviting him to come in without fear covers her intention. She doesn't hesitate to commit cold-blooded murder after having offered hospitality, which always included protection.

The end of the story results in Jael's receiving the honor of having overcome the enemy leader. "Though predicted by Deborah, the act was the result of divine foreknowledge, not of divine appointment or action" (Jamieson, Fausset and Brown). When Barak finally catches up with Sisera, it's by Jael's coming out to meet him and showing him the body.

Judges 5

Deborah and Barak give much praise and thanks to the Lord God Almighty for the defeat of Jabin and Sisera; reminiscing on the details that led to the victory....

The last verse of Judges 5:

31 So let all thine enemies perish, O Lord: but let them that love him be as the sun when he goeth forth in his might. And the land had rest forty years.
 Quoting: b4its2l8

Next, another interesting person in Judges:


And the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the Lord: and the Lord delivered them into the hand of Midian seven years.

7 And it came to pass, when the children of Israel cried unto the Lord because of the Midianites,

8 That the Lord sent a prophet unto the children of Israel
 Quoting: b4its2l8

But the Israelites did not obey the message the prophet had from God:

Judges 6:10..I said unto you, I am the Lord your God; fear not the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but ye have not obeyed my voice.


Therefore, God sent an angel to Gideon, saying, it would be him that is destined to save the children of Israel out of the oppressive hand of the midianites.
